How to calculate round port to slot port? Or horn options?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I am building a small subwoofer for my car. I am thinking of using a Rockford Fosgate 8" P2D2-8 DVC 2ohm. They recommend a .64cuft box with a 8.8" x 2" port. I would like to make a slot port but don't know how to do the calculations to create the right dimensions.

Also, if a horn can be made off this drive and can keep the box relatively small, that might be even better.

I am replacing dual 6x9 "subwoofers" in my car. The magnets on the drives state 2ohms and 25watts. They really suck and don't produce much bass. I am trying to run this new sub off my stock amp.

Any help would be appreciated..

It's all about surface area. The port opening can be pretty much any shape as long as the surface area of the opening is the same.

Thats true, just beware that very narrow slot port will most likely lower the tuning some, and chuffing may occure.

Yeah, that could be a problem.

I am limited to a 2ohm DVC design because i am sticking with the factory amp. Is there a design out there for a very efficient small subwoofer that I can use a 2ohm DVC drive with?
